    Hey guys,

    As the title states, would I be able to somehow use the upcoming Thunderbolt Display together with my current 27" LED Cinema Display ?

    Just wanting to know how they would connect seeing as though my current display does not have a Thunderbolt port on the back...

    Non tb devices just need to go at the end of the chain. So ur current display would plug into the back of the new display. If you then buy a tb hdd u would plug that in between the screens or before the screens in the chain

    You can connect it as the last item in the daisy chain. Ie, in a thunderbolt chain of devices, the only the last item can be a non-Thunderbolt, ie: display port device.
